Truly a happy meal
Okay, keep in mind we have small kids here.. Who LOVED the little fried seitan nuggets in the General Tao's Seitan from the night before.. soo, I tried to make little "chicken" nuggets from the same batch of seitan. I must say, they weren't spot on, but pretty darn edible! Along w/ it are sweet potato fries from Venturesome Vegetarian Cooking: Bold Flavors for Meat- and Dairy-Free Meals . If you don't have this book, I highly recommend it.. We have yet to have a dud from it..
And for Eli we had steamed PLAIN broccoli! Who reminded me again and again he doesn't like his broccoli mixed w/ anything.. There ya go...
my attempt at "chicken nuggets"
see this post for my "chicken" seitan
Wet.. 1/2 cup plain soy milk, mix in 2 tsp. egg replacer
3/4 cup corn starch
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp pepper
dash of Lawry's
dash of all purpose seasoning
1 tbl sugar..
dunk nugget size seitan in wet, dredge in dry, and fry ..
I think when I try this again I will cut the corn starch down to a 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup flour..
But, if you like your nuggets extra crispy.. then stay w/ the 3/4 cup corn starch.
